August Newsletter from our President Elaine

We managed to salvage our summer outing which had to be cancelled, by meeting up on the Forest instead. A very chilly but happy couple of hours with our own drinks and snacks.

Carole Blaylock has kindly agreed to run the craft group. She has invited those who are interested to a meeting at her house on Thursday 19th August at 3.30pm for a general discussion. Please click here to contact Carole if you would like to attend or if you are interested in the craft group.

  1. Sorry couldn’t get the link to Carole Blaylock. I’d love to join the craft group but can’t make the discussion meeting on 19th. Could this be passed on please? Chris Irvine ________________________________
